Which knowledge ?
And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” Genesis 3:16-17
A question which is interesting to ask ourselves is which knowledge Adam and Eve had before eating the fruit knowledge of good and evil ?
If this tree was called tree of knowledge of good and evil it’s not by accident.
The fruit of this tree was opening their knowledge on good and evil, putting them and the same level as God in this area but without the same power to dominate over evil.
And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” Genesis 3:22
The knowledge of good and evil gave them the ability to weigh things and to pronounce their own judgements without being qualified to be judge. Continue reading “Good and evil or God?”

We are his body
And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Ephesians 1:22-23
It might be challenging for normal minds to imagine that we are the body of Christ in deed. But this means a lot sense to those who are being renewed in their minds by the work of the Living Word through the written word.
We are indeed the body of Christ. All those who are born of the Spirit of the living God are actually members of the body of Christ.
I love this portion of scripture when Jesus called Saul of Tarsus before his conversion.
He said: “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me ?” (Acts 9:4)
Paul was actually persecuting the Christians. He was arresting them and sending them in prison but Jesus did not say “why are persecuting my followers or my disciples”.
He said why are you persecuting me? Continue reading “Body of Christ”
Once upon a time a Creator with his creature Were living peaceful life in a wonderful nature Joy and love were flowing out of their relationship There was only one rule to maintain their good fellowship Soon, the creature began to doubt An evil thought came to his mind Made him think that he was blind He thought that something was missing out Knowledge to … Continue reading Dividing wall
Remain in Heaven
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
If you are born again, your new home is Heaven. You are not going to heaven, you are already seated in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 2:6
Your body is still bound to the earth but your spirit is in Christ at the right hand of the Father. Our Heavenly Father has blessed us (past tense) with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places. Ephesians 1:4. Continue reading “Live from above”
We are indeed
He predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Christ Jesus in accordance with his glorious grace which he has freely given us in the One he loves. Ephesians 1:5
We have been adopted! Wow!
We were orphans on this earth not knowing where to go and what to do but now we have been adopted as sons and daughters of God.
The Father is so generous that his adoption scheme is opened to everybody at anytime until the Return of Jesus. (But nobody knows when he will come back.)
Except for Jesus, all of us came to the earth through natural fathers and we praise the Lord for them as we would not have come here without their cooperation. Continue reading “Sons of God”
Every time, Every time, Every time my life seems to go down I wanna leave this world of brutes Where most people forget their roots It’s always a hard time for emerging When in me sin and pain are merging It’s just like I have lost the sight As I can’t see from God any sign A real nightmare in the daylight Every time that … Continue reading Life goes
Wisdom and revelation
I keep asking the God of out Lord Jesus-Christ, the glorious Father that he may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation that you may know him better.
Praise the Lord!
Paul writes here to the Ephesians and tell them that he keeps asking God to give them something that they need so they can know God better.
There is a desire to know God better. Paul himself has received the spirit of wisdom and revelation and he knew the Lord better in deed.
Paul had something that they Ephesians don’t have. He has a better knowledge of God than them.
I thank our heavenly Father for men like Paul who once knew that something was good and he wanted other also to know it. Paul had received the spirit of wisdom and revelation that he was talking about or he would not have been asking God to give it to them. Continue reading “Know him better”

A done deal
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
There are some important statements like above which should be established in our lives once for all!
We were all away from God, lost in sin, dead in transgressions, blinded by darkness, gratifying the cravings or our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts.
We were by nature objects of wrath but because of his great love for us, God who is rich in mercy made us alive even we were dead in our transgressions. Continue reading “Nothing shall separate”
In the garden
I love the atmosphere of intimacy and trust which was reigning in Eden.
That was the sixth day and everything was ready to welcome the most important part of Our Father’s mighty work. The human beings.
God had decided to create us at his image and likeness so he can see himself when watches us. Continue reading “They were naked”
